And now, for something completely different…
Since Christmas is right around the corner and you’re likely shopping for gifts, I’d like to share some of our favorite children’s books.
It just so happens that many of our favorite books have a common theme of “free range kids” or, as they used to call them: kids.
You know, the kind of kids who are full of wild ideas and are super creative and curious and who spend time by themselves doing wild and creative things.
Andrew Henry’s Meadow and The Summerfolk, Doris Burn
Roxaboxen, Alice McLerran and Barbara Cooney
The Snowy Day, Ezra Jack Keats
Blueberries for Sal, Robert McCloskey
Oh, Were They Ever Happy and Bored, Nothing to Do, Peter Spier
A Walk In The Woods, Christin Couture (currently out of print)
The Railway Children or The Book of Dragons, Edith Nesbit
So if you’re looking for a great gift for your kids this Christmas, a book that you’ll enjoy reading as much as they will, check one of these out.
